Friday night, Salling's rep released the following statement: "There is no truth to this. It's the textbook case of a disgruntled girl looking to cash in on a TV star's success. We turn the rest over to Mark's attorneys and have no further comment."

Gorzela is asking for unspecified damages. Court documents state that the pair began dating in 2010.
